Creating Harmony Between Function and Beauty
Cosmetic dentistry is a specialization of dentistry concerned with how the teeth, gums, and smile look. Beyond the esthetic appearance, it also focuses on the function of the bite. A large portion of cosmetic dentistry deals with the appearance of the teeth, but the health and function of the gums, bone, and jaw are also imperative to creating a beautiful smile.
Dr. Angie Hedlund is both a graduate and lecturer at The Dawson Academy, a prestigious continuing education dental school focused on how a correctly functioning mouth is the basis of an attractive, healthy smile. Our approach to cosmetic dentistry begins with creating a healthy oral foundation so that cosmetic restorations, such as dental crowns and porcelain veneers, will last for many years. We personalize your cosmetic dentistry procedures so that all aspects of your smile are in harmony. With this approach, you will be able to enjoy better long-term oral health and a beautiful smile!
Our cosmetic dentistry services include
Professional-grade teeth whitening can brighten dull teeth and whiten stained teeth without causing sensitivity. Our in-office whitening can be completed in under and hour, and we provide multiple options of take-home whitening kits.
Composite fillings are an alternative to traditional amalgam fillings. These fillings are tooth-colored and contoured to the shape of your tooth. Along with being virtually invisible, composite fillings protect and strengthen teeth affected by cavities.
Dental bonding involves improving the appearance of teeth by repairing chips, discoloration, decay, gaps, or fractures. Composite dental bonding material is color-matched to the shade of your existing teeth for a natural looking smile.
Invisalign is a nearly invisible type of orthodontics that uses a series of customized clear aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign eliminates the need for metal brackets and wires, and is commonly a more accelerated and comfortable form of orthodontics.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover over teeth to hide imperfections such as discoloration, chips and gaps, worn teeth, and slightly misaligned teeth. Veneers are customized to restore an ideal size, shape, and shade of one or more teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Teeth too damaged for a simple composite filling can benefit from inlays and onlays. An inlay is much like a filling and fitted to the tooth to protect the portion that is broken or decayed. An onlay fits inside the tooth, but extends to one or more of the cusps.
Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns protect teeth with major damage or decay by capping over a prepared tooth. Dental bridges are a series of crowns that span over the gap of a missing tooth. Crowns and bridges help to restore both the aesthetics and function of the smile.
